2021 Kia Carnival Makes Grand Entry into Middle East Showrooms
The much-awaited fourth-generation Kia Carnival has arrived in showrooms across the Middle East and Africa. Based on Kia's new mid-size platform, the all-new Carnival is more refined, spacious, and capable than ever before, offering generous space and increased efficiency - offering owners three or four-row seating configurations, with room for 7, 8, or 11 occupants in total.
"The Carnival is as practical as it is stunning. Offering an abundance of space and cargo, the Carnival comes fitted with a modern suite of hi-tech features that cater to the interests and demands of seasoned drivers and passengers of all ages. The Carnival's cabin provides an immersive luxury experience that prioritizes comfort and convenience first. Our design team has tackled the Carnival through all angles to produce a high-quality product that is unlike any other vehicle in the segment. The anticipation comes to an end as Kia customers from the region can now contact their distributor to learn more about the all-encompassing Carnival,” said Yaser Shabsogh, Chief Operating Officer, Regional HQs, Middle East & Africa.
The new Carnival adopts Kia's latest 'Smartstream' powertrain technologies to enhance efficiency and performance. Depending on local specifications, the Carnival is available with a choice of up to three new engines, all offering swift, easily-accessible performance. All engines are paired as standard with eight-speed automatic transmissions.
The new Carnival maintains the same driving characteristics as its predecessors, prioritizing comfort above all else. With a comprehensive array of sound-reducing and insulating measures, the new NVH features ensure the new model is one of the quietest and most refined on the road.
